Is there any reason why an ABR800 AlienBees Ringflash won't work with two Hensel 500 watt/second lights? Thanks for any advice.

Any strobe will pretty much work with any other strobe. You just have to trigger all of them at the same time. The Bees have built in sensors that fire the strobe if they see another strobe fire so you could just fire one of the Hensel flash and all other flashes would fire at that time due to the sensors. I use Bees and Novatrons, for example. Since my Novatron powerpack doesn't have a sensor, I fire the pack from the camera and the Bees fire when they see the flash from the packs heads. But I also have a small plugin sensor that I can plug into the Novatron Pack, and then I could sync to the Bees and let the pack fire via the sensor.

The main question will be color balance. Flashes often have different color temperatures. Usually this won't make much of a difference but there might be some small variance. If you use custom white balance that should take care of any small variations.

Cheers,
rfs
